After I managed to configure D-Bus (I hope) correctly, I now have the 
NetworkManager Applet in my system tray.  It will start my network 
(which is only a DSL modem) OK, but when it does, it changes the host 
name.  I think that it is using the host name for the modem, but I'm not 

I am using DHClient and that works fine, no change in host name if I 
start it from the command line.

I would guess that there is some configuration file somewhere.
